How is a consulting project started and organized?

Our process is carried out in three steps:

  • Step 1: We have a conversation. Together we will determine your challenge, the questions that need to be answered, the work you’ve done so far and your definition of success.
  • Step 2: We customize a proposal that includes a step-by-step map of how we’ll get there. It’s basically a strategic menu, with timing and fees.
  • Step 3: We collaborate with you throughout the process to ensure the outcome is successful.
What is the difference between shoppers and consumers?

Shoppers are your ins-store and online visitors who purchase your goods and brands. The consumer is the person who ultimately uses those goods, so it can be a child, friend or other family member who eats the foods, wears the clothing or takes the medication purchased by the shopper. There is overlap, of course, because consumers also research goods and compare retailers and brands, thereby influencing many shopper decisions.
